    Eh, good point. I bought something off my wish list; now that I think of it, I'm not sure it was included in the sale . . . sorry if I confused anyone.

    Maybe SF could add a soothing looped musical track to threads: "discount codes do not stack la la... discounted merchandise is final sale tra la..."

    Jeans, khakis, even shorts. I don't know that I have a lot of pics, mostly on vacation time. I go for a Harajuku Sonny Crocket vibe with it. Rolled sleeves, etc...

    In the day, I used to wear so many Miami Vice style unconstructed jackets(I wish I kept them) that I'm digging the vibe. If I showed up at a party now wearing the "tux" and shorts I just could not predict the pandemonium that would ensue. But I'd probably kill it on nerve alone.....If you come across any pics that's be a hoot...Thx!

    On a separate note, on Monday starts the seasonal marathon month or running from NYC to Florence to NYC to Paris (maybe Betlin too this time) to find the best stuff for next winter.

    I'm very interested to hear from you guys what you want to see more of, what were great finds in FW14, what you weren't so much into. Some makeup ideas you'd like to see with our most flexible makers, etc...

    Hey, another long time lurker here. I'd bought some Drake's Squares from NMWA previously but just made my first clothing purchase! Oddly, I made my order before the sale started with a pair of regular straight Big Johns. They're awesome! Now that the sale's started, I'm going to grab a pair of Butteros.

    Unfortunately I don't know my size in most things (I reallllyyyyy want some of those Rota trousers) so I may have to hold off until the sale's over. My wallet can rest easy...for now.

    Outwear and knits were amazing the season. Between mountain parka, Eidos field coat, Valstar, IM, SS etc there were so many great pieces.

    I would say one of the bigger surprises for me was Portugese Flannel. These shirts are incredible well made, use high quality fabrics and at a great price. I think that casual shirting is one area that could be further developed. If you look at pieces like Universal Works, Engineered Garments, etc I do think there are some high quality casual shirts available and would love to see a bit more. The Inglese are incredible but for me too long to be worn untucked or casual so I really thought Port Flannel filled a nice gap. I would like to see flannels and the likes developed even a bit further. I'd also request a few lighter weight turtlenecks but that is more of a personal need than anything else.

    You guys rock!!

    ^ thanks. Agree with all that.

    If this is a sentiment that is widely shared by others, we will happily work with IM to see if they can make our sweaters a little longer.
    Nice ties but wouldnt really work with his very active direct sales model.

    Outerwear was just a sick buy this year all around - and so deep. I mean I went nutso with coats this season and there are/were still at least 3-5 more I really like.

    It's too late for SS15 I think but hoping the Eidos linen field jacket buy was deep or an early MTO for that will be an option.

    Bring back the grey IM Aran roll neck.

    I'm too tired for better feedback and ideas right now but will revisit. Just keep on keeping on.

    I know this clogs up inventory but offering sportcoats/suiting in short sizes would be extremely helpful. Its the only reason I cant buy from you.

    Would love to see more sneaker choices especially high tops.

    Ties/pocket squares were fucking fantastic.

    A couple of casual suede Vass would be awesome...wingtip boot, Norwegers, shortwing bluchers, etc.

    A chocolate suede wingtip boot on the F last would be souuuper...I'd put down a deposit.
